The Sweater Is Finally Done!
Back in April I showed you a picture of a sweater that I was knitting for Kaefer for her 17th birthday. Well, her birthday was in April, but of course, the sweater wasn't finished by then. I was a bit over optimistic about how long it indeed takes to knit a sweater.
Yesterday was the big day, when I weaved in the last tail of the beautiful yarn. The sweater was finished, done!! More than a month after her birthday, but my girl was happy. It fits her perfectly. I still need to block it, though, but that is quickly done.
Kaefer's sweater turned out a bit different than the picture in the pattern, but I followed the instructions to a T, so I guess the picture was just of a differently knitted model. I would have preferred the wider neckline and so would Kaefer, but we actually like our result as well.
I love the pattern! We call it the wavy pattern; it looks more complicated than it is. It was actually pretty easy, you just have to be careful and count the rows.
The first sweater I knitted after a very long time. My next projects will be socks, hats, toys...
I also will take a break from my blog for some time. I usually do that in the summer, and I feel that I really need a break right now. The last few months have been intense.
See you all in a few weeks again! Enjoy the summer!
